Around the world, researchers are working extremely hard to develop new treatments and interventions for COVID-19 with new clinical trials opening nearly every day. This directory provides you with information, including enrollment detail, about these trials. In some cases, researchers are able to offer expanded access (sometimes called compassionate use) to an investigational drug when a patient cannot participate in a clinical trial.
The information provided here is drawn from ClinicalTrials.gov. If you do not find a satisfactory expanded access program here, please search in our COVID Company Directory. Some companies consider expanded access requests for single patients, even if they do not show an active expanded access listing in this database. Please contact the company directly to explore the possibility of expanded access.
To learn how to apply for expanded access, please visit our Guides designed to walk healthcare providers, patients and/or caregivers through the process of applying for expanded access. Please note that given the situation with COVID-19 and the need to move as fast as possible, many physicians are requesting expanded access for emergency use. In these cases, FDA will authorize treatment by telephone and treatment can start immediately. For more details, consult FDA guidance. Emergency IND is the common route that patients are receiving convalescent plasma.

The goal of this study is to evaluate if CT (Computerized Tomography) can effectively and accurately predict disease progression in patients with SARS-CoV-2 (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2). You may be eligible if you have been diagnosed with SARS-CoV-2, are an inpatient at Beaumont Hospital-Royal Oak and meet eligibility criteria. After consent and determination of eligibility, enrolled patients will have a CT scanning session. After the CT scan, patients are followed for 30 days by reviewing their medical records and by phone after discharge from hospital.

The Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome COronaVirus 2 (SARS-CoV2) is a new and recognized infectious disease of the respiratory tract. Around 20% of those infected have severe pneumonia and currently there is no specific or effective therapy to treat this disease. Therapeutic options using malaria drugs chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine have shown promising results in vitro and in vivo test. But those efforts have not involved large, carefully-conducted controlled studies that would provide the global medical community the proof that these drugs work on a significant scale. In this way, the present study will evaluate the effectiveness and safety of the use of hydroxychloroquine combined with azithromycin compared to hydroxychloroquine monotherapy in patients hospitalized with pneumonia by SARS-CoV2 virus.

The (World Health Organization) WHO NOR- (Coronavirus infectious disease) COVID 19 study is a multi-centre, adaptive, randomized, open clinical trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of hydroxychloroquine, remdesivir and standard of care in hospitalized adult patients diagnosed with COVID-19. This trial will follow the core WHO protocol but has additional efficacy, safety and explorative endpoints.

SARS-CoV-2, one of a family of human coronaviruses, was initially identified in December 2019 in Wuhan city. This new coronavirus causes a disease presentation which has now been named COVID-19. The virus has subsequently spread throughout the world and was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organisation on 11th March 2020. As of 18 March 2020, there are 198,193 number of confirmed cases with an estimated case-fatality of 3%. There is no approved therapy for COVID-19 and the current standard of care is supportive treatment. SARS-CoV-2 exploits the cell entry receptor protein angiotensin converting enzyme II (ACE-2) to access and infect human cells. The interaction between ACE2 and the spike protein is not in the active site. This process requires the serine protease TMPRSS2. Camostat Mesilate is a potent serine protease inhibitor. Utilizing research on severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV) and the closely related SARS-CoV-2 cell entry mechanism, it has been demonstrated that SARS-CoV-2 cellular entry can be blocked by camostat mesilate. In mice, camostat mesilate dosed at concentrations similar to the clinically achievable concentration in humans reduced mortality following SARS-CoV infection from 100% to 30-35%.
Coronavirus Disease 19 (COVID-19) represents an unprecedented challenge to the operations and population health management efforts of health care systems around the world. The "Pandemic Research Network (PRN): Duke Community Health Watch" study leverages technology, clinical research, epidemiology, telemedicine, and population health management capabilities to understand how to safely COVID-19. The target population is individuals in the Duke Health region as well as individuals beyond the Duke Health region who have flu-like symptoms, a viral test order for COVID-19, confirmed COVID-19, or concern for exposure to COVID-19. A subgroup of particular interest within the target population is health care workers (HCW) and families of HCW. Community members will enroll in the study electronically and for 28 days will be reminded via email or SMS to submit signs and symptoms related to COVID-19. Participants who report symptoms will be provided information about COVID-19 testing (if needed) and established mechanisms to seek care within Duke Health. Instructions for telemedicine and in-person visits, which is available publicly at https://www.dukehealth.org/covid-19-update, will be presented to participants. Participants who are unable to report symptoms independently may be contacted via telephone by Population Health Management Office (PHMO) or Clinical Events Classification (CEC) team members. Data collected through the "Pandemic Response Network (PRN): Duke Community Health Watch" study will be used for three objectives. - First, to characterize the epidemiological features of COVID-19. Specifically, we will have a high-risk subgroup of HCW and families of HCW that we enroll. - Second, to develop models that predict deterioration and the need for inpatient care, intensive care, and mechanical ventilation. - Third, to develop forecast models to estimate the volume of inpatient and outpatient resources needed to manage a COVID-19 population. The primary risk to study participants is loss of protected health information. To address this concern, all data will be stored in Duke's REDCap instance and the Duke Protected Analytics Compute Environment (PACE).

The additional effect of personalized health education compared to general education following the internationally accepted principles will be evaluated in the prevention of the serious course of the novel coronavirus infection. It is hypothesised that personalized health education provides a greater degree of lifestyle change, thus the risk of a serious course of infection decreases.

COVID-19 has rapidly evolved into a generalized global pandemic. Post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) against on COVID-19 was identified as an urgent research priority by the WHO, and lopinavir/ritonavir (LPV/r) is a promising candidate for both COVID-19 treatment and PEP, with a good safety profile and global availability. This is a cluster randomized controlled trial (RCT) of oral LPV/r as PEP against COVID-19, that will address the immediate need for preventive interventions, generate key data on COVID-19 transmission, and serve as a research platform for future vaccines and preventive agents.

This study is a multi-centered, three-armed, randomized, double-blinded, controlled study, namely, the oral trial drug favipiravir tablets plus chloroquine phosphatetablets tablets group (combined group), the oral trial drug favipiravir tablets group (pirovir group), and the oral placebo treatment group (control group). The total number of enrolled cases in this study was set at 150. During the treatment, the clinical data of the subjects were collected, the changes of viral load and biochemical indicators were detected, and the outcome of the subjects was monitored. The main indicators of efficacy include improvement or recovery of respiratory symptoms and viral nucleic acid shedding. The rate of progression to severe disease, duration of fever, peripheral blood index and improvement time of pulmonary imaging were the secondary indicators to evaluate the efficacy. Statistical analysis was performed at the middle and final stages of the study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of favipiravir tablets combined with chloroquine phosphatetablets tablets in the treatment of novel coronavirus pneumonia.
